My dear friend’s father, nearing 90 in vibrancy and good health, took a terrible fall last spring and has been failing ever since. As obvious from the title of this message, Mike is an active Knight and a decorated veteran of WWII. He is suffering terribly, but fighting valiently for life and remaining alert between episodes of cardiac issues and amputations as a result of diabetes. I have looked to him for inspiration since the death of my own father, some 25+ years ago. He lives in Sand Point, Michigan, up on the “thumb” near Caseville, and is hospitalized in Saginaw.
Please, please, pray for him and his family – daughters Nora and Mary Kary, sons Michael and Matt, and beloved grandchildren. May they all be strengthened and consoled, and may our Blessed Mother intercede on their behalf.
